Trial ordered for accused gun supplier in Kenosha killings

A Kenosha detective testified that Black told him during an interview about how he purchased the assault-style rifle at a Ladysmith hardware store after getting some money from Kyle Rittenhouse, who at 17 was too young to legally buy a gun, the Journal Sentinel reported. He told the newspaper that he was carrying the gun that night to protect himself.

"I got my $1,200 from the coronavirus IL unemployment 'cause I was on furlough from YMCA", he said.

He is accused of shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, on August 25 near 63rd Street and Sheridan Road in Kenosha during civil unrest sparked by the Jacob Blake shooting. He received his first unemployment check and told reporters at the publication through a cell phone he thought to himself, "oh I'll use this to buy it".
